Mark Blumenthal explains what to make of the exit polls, and why they won’t be leaked until very close to the time the polls close (which will be at 8 PM Eastern).
James Pindell, the Boston Globe‘s campaign blogger, offers some things to watch for:
1. How Mitt Romney performs in his base of the hard core Republican towns on the “golden triangle” from, but not including, Nashua to Manchester to Salem.
2. If Manchester trends to Obama it is all over for Clinton
3. How well Edwards plays in the Seacoast and Upper Valley.
4. As always, where do independent voters go?
And apropos of the last question, Jim Geraghty has a useful primer on NH indies.
